A Night In Paris

I am so excited and proud to be a guest designer this week at Stuck On U Sketches! Sandy, Nanne, Sandi and Leah are all such talented ladies!  I was tickled pink when I was asked to be a guest designer!!!  The sketch this week comes from  the talented Becky Fleck over at Page Maps, and the twist was to add some bling! 
I had some pictures sitting on my dresser of my son's prom from 2005.  I chose one in particular.  As handsome as he is, he is quite shy.  He did not have a prom date.  There were three girls that also did not have dates for the prom.  The three of them asked my son to be their date.  I love this picture of him.  Don't you agree that he is quite the handsome young man?

All of the paper is from the new Die Cuts With A View Ciao Bella stack.  I did a lot of cutting.  All of the flowers were cut from the paper stack and popped up with of course, pop up dots!  I splurged and bought some brown lace from the fabric store.  I thought it gave the layout a romantic feel.  I applied lots of bling!
Thank goodness for Michaels $1.99 rhinestone packs!  For the title I used some glittery letters by Making Memories.  The Eifel tower and Paris sign are by K and Company and Jolees.  The pink flourishes I cut from the Home Decor Cricut cartridge.  I added lots of cotton candy stickles and then sprinkled them with glitter.
